    Hong Kong tenement, 2014

    *screams internally*

    oh....I suppose tenement indicates these places are crappy inside, but without that context it's a really cool photo portraying kinda awesome human density.

    If the photo was just labeled Hong Kong apartments, would that be as bad (ie is it the concept of the squalor or the concept of the density that is upsetting? Cause the former, sure, but the latter, no way, that's awesome.)

    As a socially anxious poor,

    Squalor bothers me much less than density. :P

    I never said it was rational.

    plus i live in the middle of nowhere wheres there's literally nothing

    Even in a populated urban area with tons of stops, the gameplay loop is basically:

    Walk to pokestop. Spin. Get all the items.
    Pokemon spawns in near you. Tap on it.
    There isn't a battle, throw balls directly at it.
    After about 3 balls, you've caught it
    Feed it to your existing Pokemon to level them up excruciatingly slowly, like all those shitty free to play card games
    Repeat

    Eventually you can try to battle/train at a gym, but there is no purpose whatsoever to doing this. Your Pokemon don't get stronger and you don't really win anything. The gym battle isn't even fun while you're doing it.

    The off-duty police officer who allegedly drunkenly drove his SUV onto a Brooklyn sidewalk, killing one man and injuring three others,apparently moved from the drivers seat to the passenger side of his car. A witness explained that he tried to drive off, but when he realized he couldn't, "he switched sides, from the driver’s seat to the passenger side... Everyone saw him do it."

    Man, this has not been my experience at all.

    My gameplay loop has been walking around exploring the city, periodically spotting rare pokemon on my radar and hunting them down/asking other nearby players if they've seen those pokemon, trading info about the location of nearby rares. Also, running into some rare high level catches, strategically leveling pokemon based on movesets/selecting which ones to feed candies, then forming coalitions with friends on the same team to go take and secure gyms nearby. Also, learning good lure locations where they can overlap and regularly visiting those spots, either to check if someone has set a lure there or to set lures myself in hopes that other people will join and keep adding lures.

    I already have a number of "rivals" in my area who regularly steal gyms from me who I know by username (a couple I even can put a face to a username already), who drive me to go out and try to catch more in order to keep pace with their high-level pokemon.

    Also also, I've found the gym battling to be really fun, particularly when you're actually setting up a team to exploit type weaknesses on a high level gym.

    One of the best pokemon I have is a high level Parasect because the meta in my area very heavily favors Hypnos and Vaporeons (since Drowsies and Evees are easy to come by).

  • WinkyWinky Registered User regular
    And the basic gameplay of catching pokemon becomes more challenging the higher level you are.

    At the point that I am, I actually have to be pretty strategic about using razz berries/great balls, timing my throws well, and throwing curve-balls.

    Pokemon Go would be a great general framework for a Shin Megami Tensei game.

    I'd love to go around thrashing demons in AR.

    It would be especially perfect because the Devil Survivor games have you using a phone to summon and capture demons.

    A Demon Summoning App app would be amazing.

    I have to say, I don't much care about Pokemon even though I admit the app is pretty phenomenal in many ways.

    When a rare pokemon spawns, you have only a short window to catch it, correct? Like, it spawns, someone catches it, and from that moment you only have about 30 seconds to start a battle with it and catch it too before it vanishes from the map?

    Boston has like, way too many Pokemon Go players, so you essentially never find anything good ever. I wouldn't know anything about the owning a gym because all the gyms have installed 1700+ CP pokemon which are way out of my reach even playing the type game. I'd have to walk around forever with the game open to hatch eggs to get anything good, which would be fine if the game didn't drain 30-40% of your battery per hour and require constant attention to restart and reconnect. I just think my experience with it was so unbelievably lousy that I couldn't justify spending another minute with it. It's interesting that your experience is so different.
